Death Standing

Post by Jizaboz » Sun Sep 15, 2019 11:10 pm

Dude from Walking Dead delivering and stealing mail with a stillborn baby in a tank strapped to him.

I’ve seen enough and will buy this day 1.

Not including a link because there are no morons here and you can all search on YouTube if interested.

His previous games were nonsensical, borderline incomprehensible drivel. Let's see if he at last learned to tell a story that makes more sense than what an 8 year old would come up with.

It's called "Go Fuck Yourself" by Usah Condom.

P.T. was nonsensical, borderline incomprehensible genius, sir.

Don't know much about P.T., but Metal Gear always looked silly to me. Maybe it's just that Japenese games simply don't know how to tell a story, I don't know. So it might be the culture, not the person.

I was just being a contrarian. The Metal Gear games are incomprehensible, but goddamn if the rest of the internet doesn't flip out when you state that.

Played it from roughly 5 to 2 am. Outstanding game. I enjoy the cut scenes more than most modern tv shows or movies. The “fear” factor here blows that last Aliens movie piece of shit out of the water for example.

My only complaint.. “montage” music! Why do directors insist on adding music with singing that goes on and on?

Still really enjoying this game. I may be reaching the end despite many side quests but I refuse to read anything about it so I don’t know aside from what the game is telling me.

B.B. is about as close to a real child as I would ever want to be responsible for. He’s friendly while attached to my suit and generally is quiet but man is he annoying with the crying when things are shitty.

C.D. (Corpse Delivery) is a seldom requested job that I enjoy a hell of a lot more than delivering bombs.

As the game progresses and the more things are connected and built by you and other players, it sucks you in despite the main objective of the game usually being delivering.. packages. It’s really something that I think has to be played to be understood as a new “type” of game in a way.. but it certainly isn’t for everyone.
